Mayer Hawthorne Crime (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) Video (Dir. Rashida Jones)
Sep 29, 2014 11:07am | StereoGum

Mayer Hawthorne’s Kendrick Lamar-assisted song “Crime” is over a year old, but it’s finally getting an official video. The clip is directed by Parks And Recreation actress Rashida Jones and sees Hawthorne making his way to a white-attire-only party, with Lamar checking in via cellphone for a rap pep talk. “I still cant believe Rashida agreed to direct,” Hawthorne told Pitchfork. “We had so much fun making this. Her effortlessly cool sense of humor comes through so … uh … effortlessly.” Watch the video and read some words from Jones below.


Song : Splashh : Colour It In
Sep 29, 2014 11:05am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Comfort, the 2013 debut album from East London-based band Splashh was a grossly underrated affair here in the states. The LP was full of youthful energy accentuated by heavy shoegaze, surf, and garage influences. The band has signaled their follow-up with the appearance of new song “Colour It In”. The song has an attractive wisfullness about it that is only further hightened by the video presented with the song full of .gifs imagery of decades past. Look to expect their sophomore album in early 2013 via Kanine Records.

Neil Diamond is playing a secret show at his Brooklyn high school
Sep 29, 2014 10:57am | Cosequence Of Sound

Neil Diamond has announced his first-ever performance in Brooklyn — though, the venue is anything but unfamiliar to the legendary musician. This evening, Diamond will hit the stage at his alma mater, Erasmus Hall High School.

Speaking to NYC’s 1010 WINS, Erasmus Hall High School Assistant Principal Jacob Daty said, Were proud of the history of the school and were excited that Neil Diamond wanted to come back because hes part of the nostalgia and history of the place. He continued, Its a once in a lifetime opportunity and we were happy to help facilitate it. Diamond attended the school between 1954 – 1956.

The show will begin at 6 p.m., with a very limited number of free tickets being distributed on a first come first serve basis starting at 3 p.m. Because Neil Diamond’s management has never tried to get brunch in the borough or eaten at Shake Shack during the lunch rush, they’re quite hilariously asking that no lines be formed prior to 3 p.m.

Presumably, Diamond will preview songs from his forthcoming album Melody Road, which is out on October 21st via Capitol Records. He’ll also probably play “Sweet Caroline”, because of course.

Caetano Veloso played two nights at BAM (pics / setlist from night 1 with Arto Lindsay)

Caetano Veloso @ BAM, 9/25/2014

On Caetano Veloso's current tour, his drummer Marcelo Callado has the word "Abraçaço" spelled out on his bass drum in masking tape, in the style of an oppositional, no-budget punk band. The word is a slang intensification of "abraço," Portuguese for hug, a typical Brazilian signoff in a letter. (It's also the title of the most recent album by Mr. Veloso, the Brazilian singer-songwriter, the best of three in what could be called, after the fact, a trilogy.) So, "a big hug," written in the same style that you typically see words like Toxic Threat, or Riot Alarm.

Here and elsewhere, in Mr. Veloso's concert at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Thursday, you could deduce that Mr. Veloso was up to his old tricks. He was twanging and retuning the audience, challenging its expectations of a figure like him: the enlightened witness from the 1960s, the eminent singer of romantic seriousness. His light-voiced geniality is a prize possession, of his and ours, but it's also a decoy. - [New York Times]

Singer/composer/guitarist/writer/political activist Caetano Veloso was in NYC last week for Nonesuch Records at BAM (part of the 2014 Next Wave Festival), playing Thursday (9/25) and Friday (9/26). The focus of his shows were his 2012, Latin Grammy Award-winning album Abraçaço but he sprink...

Universal Plans Retroactive Product Placement For Old Music Videos
Sep 29, 2014 10:53am | StereoGum

Remember when they used to blur brand names out of music videos? Times have changed, kiddos. According to The Independent, Universal Music Group will soon allow advertisers to superimpose their logos into old music videos. The videos will apparently function like billboards, with companies able to swap in a new, different advertisement once a previous paid campaign is complete. A company called MirriAd is responsible for this disheartening technology, which will first be used to insert Grand Marnier branding into an Avicii video. “Being inside content is more valuable than being outside content,” MirriAd CEO Mark Popkiewicz told The Financial Times. Sometimes living in the future really sucks.

Flying Lotus soundtracks short film on actress Noomi Rapace watch
Sep 29, 2014 10:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Among his many projects, Flying Lotus has collaborated with director Kahlil Joseph on two separate visuals. In support of FlyLo’s 2012 album, Until the Quiet Comes, the pair released a companion film, which went on to win a Sundance award. They followed it up last year with the equally dramatic and dazzling short film “Wildcat” (which was memorable if only because FlyLo played a cowboy).

Today, FlyLo teams with British artist and designer Aitor Throup for a video portrait of Swedish actress Noomi Rapace. According to Nowness, Thorup describes the project as a “three-dimensional portrait of Rapace being intricately sculpted but also acts as a portrait of her by acting as a metaphor for the various chronological steps in the actors process.” In response, FlyLo pieced together six separate unreleased songs for the 10-minute soundtrack, resulting in a menagerie of jazz and funk and other assorted grooves united only by a manic and jittery sense of forward momentum.

Nowness adds, “The material of the six previously unreleased tracks was born out of conversations between Flying Lotus and Throup at the beginning of the project. The result is an extremely personal, hauntingly beautiful and subtly brutal documentation of a subject through the use of various layers of physical, literal and metaphorical processesreflecting the complexities of not only the protagonist, but of all three a...

Listen: Joey Bada$$ – “Get Paid” (Prod. DJ Relly Rell)
Sep 29, 2014 10:45am | CMJ

Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ is making us wait a little longer on his debut LP, B4DA$$, which he says is completed and ready to go, but still has no release date.

This new single, which appeared online overnight in celebration of Pro Era’s upcoming tour, should tide us over for a bit. Get Paid is classic Bada$$, with a foamy, boom-bap beat and conscious, slice-of-life lyrics like, “Shots follow like a train, this shit never end/Same city, different boroughs, so we can’t be friends.” Listen to the track and check out some show dates below, then catch the Pro Era crew at CMJ Music Marathon in October.

Tour Dates For Joey Bada$$:

10/02 – Metro – Chicago, IL
10/03 – Mill City – Minneapolis, MN
10/04 – Granada – Lawrence, KS
10/05 – Slowdown – Omaha, NE

Stream SBTRKT Wonder Where We Land
Sep 29, 2014 10:42am | StereoGum

With his self-titled 2011 debut album, the masked British producer SBTRKT gave a serious boost to collaborators like Jessie Ware and Sampha and helped to establish the awesome architectural dance/R&B fusion that’s effectively taken over British pop music. On his new follow-up Wonder Where We Land, SBTRKT has lined up a whole battalion of big-name guests: Ezra Koenig on the single “New Dorp. New York,” Sampha on “Temporary View,” Raury on “Higher,” A$AP Ferg and Warpaint on “Voices In My Head,” Caroline Polachek on “Look Away,” Denai Moore on “The Light.” But even with all these guests, SBTRKT has created a strange, skittery, personal soundworld, one where the beats don’t necessarily thump and the melodies don’t necessarily follow any logical progression. And right now, you can stream the full album at SBTRKT’s site.

Wonder Where We Land is out now overseas and 10/7 stateside via Young Turks.

Mastodon The Motherload Video
Sep 29, 2014 10:35am | StereoGum

Mastodon released the album Once More ’Round The Sun this past summer, and now they’ve got a new clip for “The Motherload,” which is not your typical metal video. There are some fantasy-inspired set pieces, there are some cool shots of the band looking tough, but most of the video consists of women challenging each other in a dance contest. Mastodon aren’t the first band you’d expect people to twerk to, yet this video flows better than you could possibly have expected. Watch it below.

Yumi Zouma releasing new single, playing US shows after touring New Zealand with Lorde (dates)
Sep 29, 2014 10:31am | Brooklyn Vegan

Li Xi Carriages (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 29, 2014 10:31am | StereoGum

“Carriages” is the lead single off of Li Xi’s forthcoming debut album, Meet Me Somewhere. Led by Maryann Tran and James Vernon, the San Francisco group messes around with vintage instruments to produce something that sounds decidedly old-school but also incredibly dynamic. The song is buoyantly carried along by a head-bopping, toe-tapping beat and Tran’s vocals, which are reminiscent of Tennis’ Alaina Moore’s watery melodies. The song sounds like those early dawn hours on the beach, when the sun first starts to peek through the clouds and is refracted and chopped up among the waves. It’s an insanely catchy track, dreamy but grounded, and you can listen below.
